For UNIQLO’s Fall/Winter collection this year, the Christophe Lemaire-led design team at the UNIQLO Paris R&D Center is set to release a line of Uniqlo U that features a vivid fall and winter color palette and designs with in-trend volumes.
Through elegantly timeless and equally diverse ideas, the collection represents a commitment to reinventing basics as the future of LifeWear.
The collection features brilliant reds and fuchsias as rich and warm accents that symbolize the coming of fall. The styling for this season emphasizes volume through dolman sleeves for women’s fleece blousons and boxy silhouettes for men’s fleece jackets. Women’s items exude comfort and confidence, while men’s pieces convey unpretentious relaxation.
The range includes men’s and women’s BLOCKTECH coats that is water repellent and wind proofed. Women’s coats wick away inside moisture and have snap-on hoods, with hem slits that enhance comfort when walking or seated. This season sees 3D knits employing advanced WHOLEGARMENT technology for beautiful silhouettes that are also comfortable. There are two dress and three sweater designs for women. A special spinning technique has resulted in raised looks and soft textures in mélange sweaters.
There are also sweaters with vintage-style link knitting and items in comfortable ponte fabrics. The availability of items in-stores will be announced at a later date.
